It was a bit short! I was looking for more information on the type and height of supports please.

I grow autumn fruiting raspberry Polka - very large and tasty fruit - delicious.  Mine are still produce a few fruit now - enough for a small bowlfull with some muesli and yoghurt for my breakfast two or three times a week!  

Autumn fruiting raspberries don't really need supports as you prune all the stems down to ground level in the winter and they fruit on the new growth.  However  grow mine against a fence so when we had the storm forecast the other week I did just put a string along the fence to stop them blowing about too much in the storm   Otherwise, virtually trouble free

The supports in the video look to be about chest height, Myrtle S. I think they would be fine shorter if you wanted to use supports in an exposed site. Thanks for the info, Dovefromabove.
